Keepsafe Systems has some 24 x 36 inch and 36 x 36 inch (X 6 inch
deep) polypropylene garment boxes (originally designed for large
ballet "tutus" and wedding gowns). We also have reusable,
hermetically sealed barrier-film bags designed for oxygen-free
storage of hanging garments. Please see our web site
